Another Day to Give God thanks and Praise…… Another opportunity to lead someone to the Cross, Another Opportunity to Witness to a lost Soul! Beloved this is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad therein. I Greet all the leading Instruments here in the Mystical Order, Ministers, Followers and Well Wishers. Its afford me a Great Joy to write to You for yet another time.
Brother Job says in Job 14:1 that Man that is born of a woman is of a few days and full of troubles. Few Days!!!! Imagine 1000 years in the sight of the Lord is just like an evening gone. We need to understand that while we are on this earth trouble will meet us. Too much of times I hear Christian people keep complaining and worrying when troubles meet them or going through trials. Trials will come and go, that’s why it is important for us to trust and wait on the Lord. The Good songwriter says,
What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and grief to bare
What a privilege we have to carry,
Everything to God in prayer….
Instead of whining and complaining everyday about our troubles and trials, let us tell it to Jesus, cause Jesus is the rock in the weary land and He promise to shelter us in the very times of storms. Too much of times we as Christians want to be on a roller coaster where every thing is juicy and rosey. Jesus was on this earth and He didn’t always meet it easy…. He was thirsty and they gave Him vinegar, a crown of thorns were placed on His head. Until we get the point that we will all meet trouble in this earth we wont Understand what Brother Job says and what Jesus went through. I encourage us today, the time we take to complain let us dig deep in the word of God and sink ourselves in Prayer. Beloved when we feel afraid of a situation, let us just put our trust in God. And once we put our trust in Him we will surely overcome our fears. Let us wait on God as Job 14: 14 says I will wait until my change comes. Beloved before you quit and give up in discouragement, consider the long and difficult process by which a butterfly emerges from the cocoon. If you try to rush God’s purpose and process in life you will produce something deformed, something that cant get off the ground and fly. Sometimes when we are going through we will say stuff like ” I cant wait for this to over, or I’m going through too much”, Beloved that is understandable, Job couldn’t either! He says all the days of my service, or all the days of my appointed time will I wait until my change comes. But by God’s grace He survived and ended up with twice as much as he lost. So hold on my Beloved! Change is coming……. God wont give up on you, so don’t give up on Him. I want to tell you that there is a work going on in you right now, something is dying that has to die so that something better can be brought to life. So my Beloved, Let it happen!!! Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego told a king ” We will not bow down to you” (Daniel 3:18). So today I want to encourage us to not bow down to temptation, or to manipulation, or ungodly persuasion. Don’t bow down to the spirit of anxiousness and impatience. Continue to walk by Faith and not by sight knowing that God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we are able to ask or think. Remember the saying that good things comes to those who wait. Be assured that God will make the pieces fit together and He wont Disappoint us….. May God Bless and Keep us in Jesus Name.
